Have I mentioned that I've recently become totally into wine? I love having a glass (or two) with dinner. Luke and I visited a local winery this morning (Heritage Vineyards Winery). We've always admired the grapes that were growing in the fields all through Mullica Hill, but never visited this little gem of a shop.
The winery is family owned by Bill and Penny Heritage. When we walked in, Penny gave us a warm greeting. The shop contains tables and shelves of wine-related items, such as felted wine bottle cozies, wine racks, and grapeseed lip balm. They also have a variety of foods, such as pastries, cheese, and locally made honey (from one of our other favorite family-owned shops, Fruitwood Orchards). They have a wine tasting bar where you can sample before you purchase. The tasting fee is $5 for samples of 5 different wines that you choose from a list of 18. It was 10am when we arrived so we did not do a tasting.
An added bonus to this already fantastic place is that they have a cow, sheep, goats and chickens out back! This totally MADE my day!
|The goat COULD NOT get enough attention! The brown sheep kept licking my hand with his/her warm tongue but DID NOT want me to pet him/her. The other sheep was the same way.|
|These chickens made the most lovely chirping sound when I crouched down to talk to them.|
